Well after months of planning and building, menu development and recipe trials, our latest venture - Ritual Coffee Traders, is open for trade.
Well after months of planning and building, menu development and recipe trials, our latest venture - Ritual Coffee Traders, is openÂ for trade.
My husband's in the coffee industry and just cannot resistÂ seeing potential in suburban locations and claimingÂ his own little space to develop a strong coffee trade. We have had a few cafe'sÂ prior to this one, with one still operating (Dose Espresso)Â and it seems we keep acquiring more of them. We've been fortunate to have some hard working passionate young guys working in partnership with us, allowing my husband to continue to develop and overseeÂ hisÂ coffee roasting business, Gabriel Coffee. I personally don't work in any of our shops (don't ask how I got away with that) but I work with the guys to develop their menu and provide them with their sweet treats.
Athough we don't have a full kitchen, Ritual doesÂ haveÂ a considerable menu offering.Â We are offering a mix of healthy breakfast and lunch options, including acai bowls, chia pudding, salads and sandwiches as well as designer coffeeÂ (if that's even a term) including pour overs.
I have createdÂ a special RAWnola and baked Granola for commercial sale that is literally getting eaten up in seconds. Both products are vegan, refined sugar free, dairy and soy free. The RAWnola is activated and dehydrated and completely raw and gluten free.Â The granola is oat based so is technically wheat free, refined sugar free, dairy and soy free.
They are sold on the menu and alsoÂ in take home jars for the addicted amongst us.
There's also a largeÂ variety of Hippie Lane treats on offer, including a raw snickers bar, bounty ball, caramel slice, bliss balls, cookies and banana bread.
Our new little shop has been received wonderfully! We are really grateful for all the health-minded customers that have come along repeatedly to support our food and philosophy.
To have a little taste test, visit us between 6am and 3pm mon-sat and 6am to 12pm on sunday at 160 Sailors Bay Rd, Northbridge.
BIG THANK YOU's!
